Sign up for council tax reminders

If you are worried about not paying your council tax on time you can sign up to receive free text message reminders.

If an instalment you owe becomes overdue we’ll send a short automated message to your mobile phone, including the amount of council tax due, your account number, the phone number to call to make a payment, and a link to our website to make payment online.

To register to receive reminder messages please contact our Council Tax team using the details below.

Do I need to respond to the text message I receive?

No – you are not able to respond to the message, as it is simply a reminder that your council tax is overdue.

How do I cancel the messages?

If you move or wish to pay by direct debit in the future please contact the council tax department (see contacts section of this page).

Will I receive marketing or junk texts from this?

No. The service is totally confidential. Your phone number is only held on our council tax database, it will not be used for any other purpose and will not be passed on to any other organisation.
